New Cat and Owl Cast Iron Andirons
These cast iron cat and owl figural andirons have been seen in brochures and catalogs from several sources. These once retailed for around $60 per set.
No need to worry. Neither pair should easily be confused with old originals because each piece is clearly marked in raised letters "Made in China".
If you buy these pieces for everyday use, be very careful. Many of the paints used in China are highly toxic. Exposing these pieces to fireplace temperatures could release poisonous fumes.
